Agogo: 2 killed by car tyre, 2 injured

Two individuals have lost their lives with two others on admission after the rim of a car tyre smashed their heads.

The incident occurred at Agogo in the Ashanti Region on Monday, January 23, when one of the deceased, Yaw Debrah, a 34-year-old welder, applied heat to the faulty tyres.

According to an eyewitness, a tipper truck driver sent his faulty car tyre to the welder to have it fixed but the driver failed to first deflate the tyres.

Upon contact with heat, the tyre exploded and the rim detached smashing and killing a second victim named Kofi Junior, 19, a rickshaw driver.

Two others who were seriously injured have since been admitted at the Presbyterian Hospital at Agogo for treatment.

The driver of the truck, who left to urinate shortly before the accident, escaped unhurt.
